Poster Unveiled for “Assassination Classroom” Movie

One of the most awaited live-adaptation movie next year that will surely be a hit.

Based from popular manga of Matsui Yuusei, Assassination Classroom or Ansatsu Kyoshitsu tells the story of an alien homeroom teacher who came to earth to teach the students of Class 3-E at Kunugigaoka Junior High School on different ways of assassination. The students of Class 3-E (End class) were entrusted by the Japanese government to kill their teacher for the prize of 10 Billion Yen before graduation and before he can destroy the earth. However, the task have been proven difficult as their “Korosensei” possessed several inhuman capabilities.

Yamada Ryosuke will play the role of Shiota Nagisa, he look weak but his information gathering is the best, and it’s clearly obvious with the pen and notepad that he’s holding in the poster. Yamada doesn’t look that of an assassin but wait until you see the trailer and shooting bullets has never been cool. Now, I’m just super excited for Yamada’s role in “Grasshopper”. I think these type of roles suit Yamada since it’s his own way of saying that he has matured and doing action scenes will make people see beyond his youthful appearance.
